MMERC was established in 1994 by a member of Ajmal family who is an eminent Islamic scholar and a present Lok Sabha MP, Maulana Badruddin Ajmal to prepare the graduates of madrasas with good English and communication skills so that they can meet modern needs and play a more influential role in society. Students who successfully complete the MMERC prescribed intensive language course, stand at par with graduates of English medium public schools and colleges. So far nearly 325 meritorious madrasa graduates, including 26 this year, have been trained by MMERC who are capable of writing articles, delivering lectures on Islam and comparative religion, teaching English and Arabic through English medium.
Most of the successful students of MMERC have been placed at renowned organizations and magazines in India while several others have gone abroad such as USA, UK, RSA, KSA, UAE and in some other countries of the world and they have been working there with their primary duties as teachers, interpreters, translators, and speakers.

May Allah bless Maulana Badruddin Ajmal Qasmi for his all-round services of Islam and the community. Accept his virtues and forgive his short-comings. Ameen. Really he has done for the betterment of the community what most people cant even think of. I am highly influenced by his deep knowledge, farsightedness, broad-mindedness and also grand sacrifices he has carried out to spread Islam and to uplift the community. At the same time, I salute the enthusiasm, endeavors and sincerity of MMERC staff. With their efforts, hundreds of Ulama are able to communicate with international people and convey their messages pertaining to religion as well as related to their day-to-day issues. May Allah reward the staff and all people who have served MMERC in any possible way to equip Ulama with modern education.
